It's a very complicating series. To put it in a synopsis is a very gruelling task

Ohhh if ya like book, though probably you won't have the same likings as I do. I'd reccomend Broken Sky, My most favorite book series. Else Eragon is a fine litature. And as for manga, Samurai Deeper (for violance), Inu Yasha (also for violance) or Love Hina (for great comedy).

Yes, I've found reading to be more enjoyable ^_^

So, following my logic, the book must be 57024 times better!

Points for DC for being the first to mention Eragon, but nr. 2 was kinda expected.

My favorite trilogy is The bartimaeus trilogy, by Jonathan Stroud.
Then there is Cornelia Funke, her best works are: Inkheart, Inkspell and The theif Lord.
Enjoy.

Count of Monte Cristo

It's like Kill Bill with French people...ok, I meant to sound cooler, but it didn't. But really, it's good. It's a revenge story. Really good.

Lord of the Flies by William Golding

The Dragon Lance series by Margaret Wiess and Tracy Hickmen

Any R.A Salvatore novels

Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

I don't want to sound like some wierdo but these are all good books/graphic novels...

Johnny The Homicidal Maniac-This is an absolute classic. I am now the noodle boy that flies!

Hellsing-Until I read deathnote, this was my favorite manga series, rediculous violence, nazis, etc. Its like blade,007, and indiana jones thrown into a crack head's blender.

Lords of Chaos:The Bloody Rise of The Satanic Metal Underground-If you like heavy metal musci at all, read this book. If you like true crime, read this book. If oyu like to read about scary real life crazy people, read this book, it has them all and it can introduce you to a great genre of music.

Death Note-manga that reads like a psychological suspense novel? yes it is, and it is very well written compared to most of the manga tripe that gets printed. the art is alright as well, but really this woulkd have worked just as well as a novel instead of a comic book.
Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.-J. Robert Oppenheimer, leader of the Manhattan Project

Glahart, I'm sorry if I sound mean... but you haven't heard of Count of Monte Cristo?! I mean, I know that book is old, but I like grew up reading Dumas' books (both father's and son's) and it looks kinda weird to me...
Anyhow, it differs quite a bit from the other books listed here - you'll like it if you like old style of writing.
As far as I go, I reccomend The Black Company by Glen Cook. It's a large series, I know, but it's good!
Darnit, leave me the eff alone. I don't HAVE anything wise to say. Sig's just aren't my thing.
Listen to teh squirrel.
